A detailed look at the Samsung Galaxy S9, before it is unveiled to the world officially
The S9, Samsung’s next flagship Galaxy series is in full swing. The S9 smartphone is expected to be portrayed at an event in Spain during the MEC 2018. However, in an online report, the entire specifications and press photos are already out in the open — thanks to the grand leak.
This February 25, the world will officially witness the Samsung Galaxy S9 in all its glory. However, the recent leak put forth by WinFuture shows that the S9 will mostly be similar to the S8, except that it will consist of a slightly smaller, unnoticeable bezel right at the bottom.
As far as the leak is concerned, the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be sporting a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED Infinity QHD+ Display with a Plus model looking at 6.2-inch screen. Both the phones will feature a 2960 × 1440 pixel resolution on an 18:5:9 panel. To add to it, under the hood, a powerhouse processor from Samsung’s own kitchens, the Exynos 9810 clocked at 1.9GHz in normal and 2.9GHz in turbo modes will run the new flagship along with the 4GB and 6GB of RAM, respectively. The two phones are to support 64GB ofonboard storage with up to 400GB additionally via Micromax SD cards. The units will witness a 3000mAh and 3500mAh battery with wireless charging and fast charging just as well! Asian and European models will witness the usual Exynos, while the Snapdragon processor will see the other markets.
However, nothing has been mentioned for the Snapdragon processor variant as of now.
But, the leak states a Snapdragon 845.
As far as the camera is concerned, the two will be featuring a dual-pix camera with 12MP sensor (dual 12MP+12MP sensors on the S9+ variant) and both could feature a sport variable aperture between f/1.5 and f/2.4. Laser focus and OIS are also claimed to be part of the optics. Front cameras of the two smartphones will probably also boast of an 8MP sensor with an f/1.7 aperture.
To conclude it all, the leak also confirms three different colour variants – Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple, and the phones will ship with Android Oreo out of the box.
The phones are said to support IP68 rated water and dust proof housings, Iris scanners and fingerprint sensors as usual. A stereo speaker is also said to be present.
Even though this leak can still be considered as just another rumour since there is no official confirmation on the same, all we can do now if cross our fingers and hope for this amazing phone to launch sooner than the soonest!
Well, let’s hold on till the 25th of February and only then shall we witness the actual specifications, the only thing that could confirm this leak’s status.
